The objective of this book is to begin the process of building a global network of young scholars familiar with, and appreciative of, other countries' approaches to research in the area of entrepreneurship. The book falls naturally into four parts, starting at a very high level of generality and becoming increasingly focused. The first set of papers presents novel and insightful ways of looking at entrepreneurship from a perspective that is substantively different from the more traditional U.S. view. Second are a subset of papers, also distinctively conceptual and theoretical, which give insights into the profound differences in culture of the participants and the way that the various representatives' social, political and religious platforms influence the way they see the evolution of entrepreneurship in their particular countries. The third subset of papers are generally empirical studies which address the entrepreneurial environment and the way in which this environment shapes entrepreneurial endeavour. The final set looks at different countries' perspectives on how entrepreneurs go about forging and managing their enterprise. The papers and their critiques originate from the first annual Global Conference on Entrepreneurship Research held at Imperial College, London, February 1990.
